Book News Annotation:

Lincoln, a physicist at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, helps explain, as the foreword writer (a theoretical cosmologist) puts it: "...what compels scientists to work for years on the world's most complicated experiments...." After declaring physics the most interesting science and overviewing its scope for a general audience, he traces the history of what is known/theorized in the field up to "exotic physics" (i.e., the next frontier). Chapters begin with quotes and include down-to-earth explanations. The volume concludes with technical appendices and a glossary.
